The first preliminary final between Richmond and Collingwood at the MCG on Friday night is one of the most anticipated September clashes of all time.
Given they are not only the two biggest clubs in the AFL, but also two of the competition's biggest rivals, it is expected that over 100,000 fans will attend the grand final qualifier.
However, as big as the crowd will be, there's no chance it will break the preliminary final crowd record which was set back in 1970.
